/11 and fighting our enemies and the problem with the obama administration is not that it is too assertive in the war but the problem is we are retreating around the world and emboldening our enemies. if rand paul wants to be to the left of the obama administration, he can try. maybe there is some support for that. >>chris: the president thinks that "bringing our troops home" but not in a rush but that is a winning message and the last campaign, frankly, republicans everyone not talking a lot about open-ended foreign commitments. does the g.o.p. need to recognize and respond to a war wearyness? >> the drone issue and war wearyness are two different issues. rand paul's war on drones is a war on a pretty successful tight against terrorism. i am not sure where that gets us. i agree with bill, the g.o.p. doesn't lose by being a strong party of national security. what the republicans lost were moderates in the election. 5 percent of moderates went to self described moderates, went to president obama, not the party. that is who you need to get back. do you not do it by a drone going after drones
supported the bush administration after 9/11 and fighting epimieses and the problem with the obama administration is not that it is too assertive. the problem is that we are retreating all around the world and unfortunately emboldening our enemies. if rand paul wants to run to the left of the obama administration he is tree to ned ahat in the republican minute. maybe this is more is support for that than i think but i doubt there really is. >> chris: nina, the president thinks bringing the troops home not in a rush but steadily and eventually is a winning message in the last campaign, frankly not talking about open-ended commitments. does the gop need to recognize and respond to a war weariness in the country? >> i think the drone issue and war we areness are two totally different issues. rand paul's war and drones is a war on a pretty successful fight against terrorism right now. i'm not sure where that gets us. i agree with bill that the gop doesn't lose by being a strong party of national security. what we -- what the republicans lost were moderates new election. thin in the 56%
for ronald reagan and, been in the bush administration and the problem with the obama administration is not that it is too assertive but that we are retreating all over the world as unfortunately, emboldening our enemies and if rand paul wants to run to the left of the obama administration, he's free to try and maybe there is more support than i think but i'm doubtful that there really is. >> chris: nina, the president clearly thinks that, quote, bringing our troops home, not in a rush, but, steadily, and, eventually, is a winning message and in the last campaign, frankly, republicans were not talking a lot about open-ended foreign commitments. so does the g.o.p. need to recognize and respond to a war-weariness in the country. >> i think the drone issue and war-weariness are two different issues and rand paul's war on drones is a sort of a war on a pretty successful fight against terrorism, right now and i'm not sure where it gets us. i agree with bill. you know, the g.o.p. doesn't lose by being a strong party of national security. what we -- what the republicans lost were moderates.
to understand how the obama administration could have come up with a story this was anything other than a terrorist attack from the beginning. it had nothing to do with the video. we are not going to cover up a failed foreign policy episode. and read in the "new york times" all of the successes of the obama administration. you cannot have a country where the commander in chief gets to celebrate successes and hide his failures. >> bret: you think we will get to bottom of it? >> if we don't have survivors come forward in an appropriate way, i will continue to make life difficult in the senate. i am begging my house colleagues if they will not voluntarily release the names of these survivors through the congress for appropriate interviews to get to the bottom of what happened in benghazi that you subpoena them. house republicans, jason chaffetz, frank wolf have done a great job. but to our leadership in the house you have to up your game on benghazi. >> bret: what is the end of this? if you have people testify and they find out thing what is is the end game? >> if they knew the truth about

to the obama administration tosses roadblock to energy development and pave the way for projects like my colleague just mentioned, the keystone pipeline, which will generate more than 130,000 jobs, boost our economy, and bring down energy costs. the budget also promotes economic growth, job creation, supports research and development in the energy sector, and moves america to a more energy independent state. it expands oil and gas development, which could generate a half a million new jobs and $14.40 trillion in increased economic activity. by preventing or delaying domestic energy exploration, the obama administration has driven jobs overseas. in this budget, the house republicans in the subsidies, -- support for this budget translates into a response will plan to grow our economy and create jobs. i yield back my time. >> i would like to yield two minutes to the gentleman from indiana. >> thank you. what we are doing here today, people in america are hurting. too many parents have come home and tell their children they do not have a job. washington has refused to make the tough choices
arizona and the obama administration. this time, over the state requirement that those who seek to register to vote provide proof of u.s. citizenship. arizona registration form requires more proof than the simpler federal form. on which applicants check a box, ind kateing u.s. citizen think, sign attesting to that fact and drop it in the mail. arizona argues that it doesn't conflict with the federal form but serves as an additional barrier against voting by non-u.s. citizens. >> if somebody is willing to fraudulently vote that person would be willing to sign fals falsely. so the signature doesn't mean anything. we need evidence that the person is a citizen. >> justice scalia sounded skeptical of the streamlined federal form. "check off, i am a citizen, right? so it's under oath. big deal. if you are willing to violate the voting laws i suppose you're willing to violate the perjury laws." despite issue the arizona officials say they are facing justices like ruth bader ginsberg said there are statutes saying they must accept and use the federal form period. that is the end of it.
of the house foreign affairs committee delivered a blistering critique of the obama administration's conduct. >> for two bloody years, u.s. policy has been addressed. they initially saw him as a reformer. once the revolt started, they backed u.n. diplomacy. predictably, none of this is war. reporter: as if bashar al-assad is any closer to hang onto power, the ambassador said he is not a psychiatrist, but the receivers military situation is worsening. jon: the longer this goes on from the more damage goes on. >> they are seeing hezbollah soldiers and weapons systems coming from iran and using iraq as a transit point. the secretary of state was recently in saudi arabia by providing arms to the rebels directly while the u.s. has non-lethal it. ambassador defended the administration's approach. >> is secretary. >> is secretary john kerry noted ,-com,-com ma therefore we are working with our partners to strengthen the opposition on the ground. reporter: russia continues to look at the concerns. jon: thank you. speak to the growing concerns of the nation of cyprus. the government elected to come u
the united states, the obama administration now expected to announce that it will put additional resources to protect the united states. the catch here, fred, is that it's going to take several years and costs about $200 million to open up some of these silos. some congressional republicans i was speaking with say they argued against closing down some of these silos a few years ago when the obama administration did so. they said at the time the administration felt there wasn't a needed threat, that they didn't need as many interceptors. now they're going back and having to reopen them. some of the republican congressional folks i've been speaking with say the threat was there, the intel was there and now it's going to cost a whole lot of money to get these turned back on. >> all right. 14 more interceptors to be put in place. thank you so much. chris lawrence, appreciate that from the pentagon. i know he'll be briefing us later on as well. >>> for all you tech fans, samsung's new galaxy s4 is here. we're previewing the features. and why you might be giving up more of yourself these days on
administration to be deployed in 2009. but as part of the obama administration effort, basically, to tank our national missile defense program, they were put off, even in 2009 north korea exploded a second nuclear device. so, it's a step in the right direction. it's too late, but it's still a step in the right direction. there are other aspects, such as the canceled plans for radars and missile sites in poland and the czech republic and the famous reset buttons, there were casualties there and that will will have to be put back in place. >> gregg: and a little experience sometimes burnishes your wisdom. the north koreans, as i understand it, are trying to miniaturize their nukes to place them atop missiles and trying to develop missiles that could actually reach the west coast of the united states and hawaii. how serious a threat is that? >> well, i think it's a very serious threat. not today, but you know, one reason, as you said earlier, you need to get these additional missiles installed, missile for missile defense purposes, you don't sort of push a button and get ready. the north koreans
bellicose language. this is really a disappointment on the part of the obama administration more broadly when they look at north korea. they were hoping that the new leader, kim jong-un, who took over after his father died, would be more willing to work with the united states. but that is not the case. in fact, they have looked at the situation in north korea, and say that it really appears as though they are moving in the opposite direction, more bellicose, more isolated, so they are watching the country very closely. president obama, of course, has mapped out an ambitious second term agenda which includes immigration reform. a new gun control legislation. but a lot of people say that the situation in north korea, and also iran, could wind up dominating a lot of his second term. alex? >> okay. kristen, thank you very much for that from the white house. >> thank you. >> about ten minutes or so from now we're going to talk with congresswoman loretta sanchez. she's here in studio. she's of course a member of the homeland security committee and we're going to ask her directly how serious is
of plant management and customer service. the obama administration is in charge of the i.t. network required for all that. >> how will this affect cost were states on average? >> it is unclear. there is money and they forgo care act for that. some of that is impacted by sequestration. everyone is convinced that the obama administration will make sure that there is money to set off the exchanges, regardless of the impact of sequestration. >> where are we in the process? sequestration is happening now. but as far as one exchanges have to be set up, there have been several deadlines that have been put in place. >> some are several months away. but in terms of the forgo care act, it turns exchanges need to be running october 1, in order to be in compliance. there are a lot of questions as whether they will be ready in time to get those complex i.t. networks in place in time and whether states that have held out for for where they want to do will have enough time. >> any chance they will be able to get some sort of delay or exemption from the federal government? >> they haven't had expli
.scorching about a dozen cars. no one on the ground was hurt. it's not clear yet what caused the crash. the obama administration signalled today that it's taking north korea's nuclear threat seriously. kron four's grant lodes has the details of the major expansion of something called ground=based mid- course defense. it's a defensive shield few people are even aware of. return to index of stories... (countdown) >> 5,4,3,2,1. if there's ever a missile attack on the u=s, this is our best hope to stop it. the pentagon calls it ground-based mid-course defense. and after the latest nuclear threat from north korea, it is being expanded on the west coast. >> the reason we are advancing our program here for homeland security is to not take any chances, is to stay ahead of the threat. north korea launched a long range missile in december. it conducted its third nuclear test last month. and new leader king jong un, has certainly revved up his anti-american rhetoric, but north korea is believed to be years away from even testing a missile with the 5=thousand mile range needed to reach the u=s. the u=s has 3

that night that according to lindsay graham who told fox news the obama administration is being unusually tight lipped compared to other events. >> you got to remember this administration leaked every detail of the bin laden raid. though telled old us about seal 6. they are refuse to go give us the identity and allowing congress to be interviewed. >> four died in the terror attack. shawn smith and former navy seal glen daughterty and tyrone woods and ambassador chris stevens. >> information begins to emerge as we learn the security agents and one state department contractor who were among the injured may be being asked not to talk. lindsay graham tells fox news the injured survivors may have been quote told to be quiet. he says the house should investigate. >> i am going to hold up the business of the senate until they get the survivors on record. i have talked to a couple. the story is chilling they are scared to death to come forward without some institutional support. >> members the house intelligence committee says it's still too early to say whether or not they will investigate. >> s
. obama administration officials telling fox news the rogue nation threat is evolving, that is their word. just yesterday president obama shed new light on the u.s. response in an interview with an israeli tv station. >> north korea is so isolated. it is so dysfunctional in some ways it was harder to apply pressure on them. >> gregg: remember, this is the same nation that has spent more than $3 billion on its missile and nuclear programs according to south korean estimates while millions of men, women and children are starving. so what do we expect the pentagon to be announcing here. >> reporter: we expect them to increase the intercepteders in california and alaska which the bush administration had planned to do. this was the message earlier this week at the pentagon on tuesday. >> between our allies and remains for any contingency and we stand ready to protect u.s. and south korean interests. the important message that this government has sent to north korea is that the need change it's rhetoric and take the temperature down. >> reporter: but just eight days ago the white house spokesma
in the obama administration went on offense. >> to say we have no reason to believe the allegations represent anything more than the regime's continued attempt to discredit the legitimate opposition and distract from its own atrocities committed against the syrian people. >> we would warn the regime making these charges, any kind of pretext or cover. for its use of chemical weapons. >> that wasn't the first such warning from the white house. >> red line for us is we start seeing chemical weapons moved around or utilized. >> late today, carl levin, democrat of michigan and chairman of the senate armed services committee told foreignpolicy.com josh rogan he wants to see the u.s. establish no fly zone over syria. others want to see u.s. troops on the ground in syria, possibly in conjunction with nato or other allied forces to secure the stockpiles of chemical weapons. bret? >> bret: james rosen live on the north lawn. thank you. president obama leaves in an hour-and-a-half on his second mideast trip as commander-in-chief. it will include his first such visit to israel. chief white house correspo

joking around with dennis rodman. the united states, the obama administration, right now taking the north's threats of a nuclear attack very seriously. the pentagon has just announced it will beef up america's defense missile systems out on the west coast. in california, oregon, washington state. let's go straight to cnn's pentagon correspondent chris lawrence, watching what's going on. chris, a lot of us are stunned by this decision but update us on what is going on. >> wolf, we just came out of a briefing where we learned the pentagon is going to spend a billion dollars to put new intercepter missiles on the west coast. now, that plan includes react investigating a missile field that the obama administration deactivated just a few years ago when it concluded that north korea didn't pose enough of a threat. if a nuclear missile is ever fired at the united states, this is the best hope to stop it. 30 interceptor missiles which can be launched from ground silos in alaska and california. now the pentagon is deploying up to 14 more. >> the reason we're doing what we're doing and the reason w
alaska is pleased that putting his home state on the map. he says the obama administration should have known sooner. >> they misdiagnosed what was happening in the region in terms of what heavily sanctioned country determined to acquire these capabilities could do. one silver lining at this point is perhaps missile defense has bipartisan support. >> reporter: earlier reaction shows it's bipartisan but there are serious budget issues in washington these days. >> no doubt about that. thank you very much. it's important to keep in mind, north korea spends an enormous amount of the budget on its military while two-thirds of the country has trouble finding food to eat. the report claims that children have been caused stunted growth. just 50 years ago, south korea was as poor as the north but five decades after it embraced democracy the south one of the most prosperous nations on earth. >>> new gun control bills could soon become law in where movie theater massacre happened. they set a limit of 15 rounds per magazine. they expect colorado's governor to sign the law back in two weeks. back in
miscalculation. did the obama administration when it first got started miscalculate the north koreans and same can be said toward iran and apparent nuclear build-up? >> i think you can make the case. they misjudged how they can influence the behavior of china and russia in a positive way. they miscalculated how quickly rogue leaders are able to acquire these weapons under a sanctioned regime. >> kelly: so based on that what is the united states need toin r development and threats as we see it from north korea and iran because it's increasing clear to many that imposing tough economic sanctions on these countries is not working? >> it's not. i think we have to truly all of the above approach where we are looking at comprehensive pressure on these regimes but also there needs to be cost of these enablers. if we don't change that calculus it will continue. >> kelly: steven yates, good for you to join us and shed some insight. we value your perspective. >> jamie: we are medical beat. a dire warning about disease that kills 15,000 women a year. what new research is telling us about ovarian cancer a
: it would be great if the obama administration simply released the information and told us what was actually happening. that would be great. but so far they have not been very forthcoming. and with a compliant mainstream media, people aren't asking a lot of questions. while the smoking gun is actually reporting the story about how blumenthal's e-mail account had been hacked and how the four e-mails that had been sent to hillary have now been distributed to members of congress and members of the media, they haven't revealed what's in the memo. >>brian: there is no information that's inside. you could say it would be great for the obama administration to come forward. but nobody thinks that personal interaction should be public. when you e-mail your personal friend and attorney, you don't want that to be published. >>steve: remember what happened with wikileaks and julian as sang and the guys at wikileaks, as soon as they got their hands on the stuff at the bush white house, let's put it out there for everybody to see. it's interesting to see what the people in the press, the restraint they're
700,000 are waiting more than a year. and the obama administration, the number of disability claims waiting over a year has gone up by 2,000%. if you're in new york or los angeles or reno, you're waiting over 600 days for the care and benefits that you deserve. that's why i'm in washington this week and that's why many iraq and afghanistan veterans are in washington. >> say that again if you will, paul. we've heard this, the numbers are becoming more outrageous by the month. what's happening at the v.a. is an absolute disgrace. please talk about, again, how long are wounded warriors having to wait for treatment and care in america? >> well, one of them with me here in washington this week is zach mccowan, he's been waiting 900 days. the system is broken, thousands of veterans are stuck in it. and nobody's really paying attention. we need the president's attention on this now. he's ended the iraq war, but he can't end the v.a. paperwork backlog. right now 97% of v.a. disability claims are on paper. in the year 2013, 97% are still on paper. this is a story this week that really needs
a major concern already for both the obama administration and netanyahu's administration. we do know according to a senior israeli official that i spoke with on condition of anonymity that this issue of the united states being asked to strike syria if certain things such as some of their weapons, missiles in particular are heading over the border to hezbollah, an organization in lebanon that the united states and israel both consider a terrorist organization. that is going to be something that is going to be on the agenda in the discussions. but this chemical weapon issue is one that they were going to be talking about beforehand. they also have talked about the difficulties if you speak with folks that know about how to get rid of some of the weapons, the difficulties of getting rid of chemical weapons, you cannot just do an air strike. you have to go in on the ground to pull those out. a very big concern. we've been on the border of the israel-syria border and been able to hear some of the fighting inside of syria. some of that fighting spilled over into israel. so definitely a ver
's office politics, michael isikoff, he's been on the front lines reporting on the obama administration's controversial drone policy. i asked him about the uproar and the catalyst for the recent scrutiny. >> what we did was get ahold of the justice department white paper which laid out the legal reasoning that would justify the use of lethal force, drone strikes, although it doesn't mention drone strikes, against american citizens. and while the administration officials had given a couple speeches on the subject, the white paper filled out some of the blanks in those speeches and gave a fuller explanation of the legal reasoning, and in some ways when i think significantly went beyond what had been stated publicly. particularly, and this is relevant very much to the discussion of the iraq war, what it called -- what it described as a, quote, broader concept of imminence. the first test as to whether or not a president can use lethal force to kill an american citizen is does that citizen, is he engaged in activity that poses an imminent threat to american citizens? that's the first test.
] and what have we seen from the obama administration? --t the obama administration the obama in administration is sending a signal at the worst possible time. we talk, and they and rich. they do not take us seriously, and is leading from behind strategy, it is not working. think about the message that we are sending. president ignored the advice of his commanders, his own commanders, and rushed to the exits. and what was the result? al qaeda is making a comeback in anq, and iran has become important player in iraq. -- wax we are going to leave it here. but, i know a little bit about the business and nothing about politics. i won't wander into areas where i am on competent. jazzknow something about that i thought i would share with you. i thought i would share with you. hisyou hear about is granddaughter. she is two years old. an important statement. governor bush was the most successful governor of his era. [applause] we have become friends because we have this passion for technology. spent -- he is connected to the tech world. he has their rotation for e- mailing his staff a
house for us. how much of a problem is north korea right now for the obama administration? >> reporter: well, i think it is a problem, craig. the obama administration had been hoping when kim jong-un took over that he would help to lead north korea out of isolationism. really the opposite has happened. he's become more bellicose than his father and these intercepters are going to be placed because of recent provocations from north korea and there is a sense that they've made advances in nuclear capabilities. last week, north korea threatened a preemptive nuclear strike against the united states and also they're ending their treaty with south korea. to there is a lot of concern. we should say this move to increase the number of intercepters marks a shift in the obama administration's policy, because back in 2010, they had said they weren't going to add new intercepters. this comes as president obama is just starting his second term. he's mapped out an ambitious agenda. but experts say this is going to take up a large portion of the next several years, concerns about north korea and iran
government. and there are some signs i think that the obama administration is at least thinking about the. that. i reference executive order that came from the office of management budget lashes suggesting there should be a higher standard of evidence-based work in terms of federal grant making procedure. obama has done to fund for social innovation to which is in no every thinking of government acts and the terrible sector. that leads me into an optimistic as you say, but i think it's a reasonable place to focus a certain amount of energy into think about whether it can be done at least in part. i'll be the optimist for once. >> host: about midway through the book, you chronicle some stories of what i refer to as the scoundrels in the sector. and one of any refer to as the association for firefighters and paramedics. self-enrichment, masquerading as a charity, and you say a website that is a marvel of dashed and revealing not a single fact of relevance to the donor. and here's what you then point out. should be the case. number one, what's missing. number one, there's no financial inform
security council in the obama administration and aaron david miller, fellow at the woodrow wilson international center. welcome, both. first, tommy, why did it take so long for this president to get to israel? he had a lot on his plate there were enormous economic challenges to deal with back home. but not every president going to israel in his first term, george bush didn't. this is great opportunity for the president to sync up with prime minister netanyahu on iran, sir yarks the critical issues of the region where israel is in the eye of the storm. he can also speak directly to the israeli people, via a speech to a bunch of university students. >> aaron david miller, you were a middle east negotiator in a number of white houses and state departments, republican and democratic. what, how much syncing up with prime minister netanyahu do you think is going to take place, realistically? >> it's smart politics, it's smart policy, too. obama has got the most dysfunctional relationship with any israeli prime minister in the history of the u.s./israeli relationship. now benjamin netany
controversial situation. the obama administration releasing illegal aliens from prison who have been convicted of crimes in this country. >> did you release any resittist drunk drivers? >> yes. >> how many? >> i don't have the exact number, but we have released many individuals who had dui offenses. >> repeat offender dui. >> repeat offender dui. congress has not provided that dui is a ground of removal. in fact most misdemeanors is not a ground of removal. it's the agency by agency policy that factors that in. i can't order you removed for having committed a dui offense. >> no, you can't, director but you certainly can request a rescheduling so you can move money around. this notion that you don't want to rob peter to pay paul, you could have easily done that you could have found $600 to keep these level one violators from being released and don't act like you could not have. here now uma. number of drunk drivers who have killed americans. very troubling. what was this hearing. >> house judiciary committee hearing looking at the fallout from the release of those 2,000 plus detainees who were

of imperfect storm here during the obama administration. you have the republicans, many of whom support the idea of more presidential authority in the use of force, and you have a lot of democrats who don't want to criticize the president. you have a heads and -- you have a hesitancy to have the proper debate. the libya example is a very important one to look at. ,ost: congresswoman barbara lee a guest earlier today, pointing to the use of military force after 9/11 after the terrorist attack. "if that was a turning point, it gave too much broad authority to the executive branch." guest: there is some truth to that. we have an inherent right to self-defense as a nation, which allows us to take actions against international terrorist organizations. the way i have always put this, any place in any country that either cannot or will not deal with these elements -- that has been the justification coming out of that authorization for the broader use of force against individual targets. the concern i have is, first of all, we don't know. we don't know the actual justifications for that. number
